Well, the fakers are 'out in force' and now posting on our Blog. I'd like to thank them SO much - and remind them that the selling of counterfeits is illegal, irrespective of whichever country you live in.
The post (now removed) reminds me - at this time of year, many buyers are looking to add a nice new pair of sunglasses to their summer wardrobe. Do please take care, as the market in counterfeit sunglasses is large. ALL Design Brands are affected, and so please make sure you buy from a reputable source.
Recently, we have seen fake John Richmond, Roberto Cavalli, Louis Vuitton - and in the latter case - the pricepoint was HIGH. Likewise, please also be aware that IF you are buying sunglasses from an auction listing, and you are located in another country from the seller, you MAY be liable to Customs/Duties/Taxes. In which case, you may, for instance in the UK., be subjected to an additional fee of around 22% of the value which has been shown on the shipping documents.
The other MAJOR issue is that Customs may seize your item, and we have had a number of clients who have had counterfeit items seized by their countries Customs/Border Forces. Therefore, please only buy from either a reputable reseller or from a retail store.
Advice - stay safe, buy safe - and spend your hard earned money on the 'real thing'.
